“A great vibe in the group with like-minded people. Have been looking for a networking group like this for quite some time. Thanks ESC“
“An excellent resource for any young entrepreneur wanting to connect with like minded people. Informative workshops and positive atmosphere and people! Will be back to all your workshops“
“I’ve only been active with the ESC for a few weeks, yet it’s changed my life already. I’m connecting with friendly, motivated people and formed connections that have helped my business and I’m sure it will give my social life a nice boost in the coming months. It’s such a small financial investment in return for a multitude of business and social opportunities.“
“Entrepreneur Social Club is an amazing community, where you get to hang out with awesome people, share ideas, make honest connections. The workshops that are provided are particularly helpful – the recent one on branding allowed me to learn vital information and a strategy to help with marketing and creating the right branding for my company. The setting meant it was interactive and each person there could focus on what they needed and different ideas were put forward. It was also a great opportunity to network with like-minded individuals.“
“The first step into ESC felt like home. Like minded people who want to bring value to the world. Jess is a down to earth, born leader. Highly recommended ESC!“
“What’s not to love about a community driven on genuinely connecting one another?
Not only does ESC set out to do this – they actually achieve it!
In just one month of membership I’ve already created real friendships, developed business connections and opened up new and exciting work opportunities.
Both my business and personal life is flourishing and my gratitude is enormous! I’m finally grasping what a work/life balance is and couldn’t be happier that I’m a part of the Melbourne Entrepreneur Social Club.
Fun and phenomenal events, brilliant workshops and opportunities to expand your business and education further than you thought achievable…5 stars!“

There are thousands of Startup Communities around the world, choosing one is hard. Why is ESC Australia's fastest growing Startup Community?
Here are some of the reasons:
We connect investors, co-founders, like-minded people and consumers.
We believe in not taking ourselves too seriously. We believe that as entrepreneurs life and work cannot be separated, and rather than balancing, we try to integrate them. Everyone is encouraged to mix business with being social, adventurous, creative, and open-minded.
We believe linking up & helping one another in any way we can to accelerate success. Through a variety of events, we provide an environment that encourages real connections, not just exchange of business cards.
We believe entrepreneurship is primarily about business success – and about the willingness to do whatever it takes in order to achieve it. That means working hard, accepting mistakes as part of the learning process & taking risks. This entrepreneurial mindset is at the heart & soul of everything we do.
We believe in getting better every day in all that we do, as entrepreneurs and as a social club. We analyze and improve productivity, processes, tasks and ourselves to ensure we are always improving. We work with enthusiasm and intellect and are driven to surpass what has already been achieved.
We believe that ongoing learning & development is the key to achieving your dreams. We not only continually seek new and informative sources for our knowledge, we openly share our experiences and previous knowledge to educate one another.
We believe in keeping it real, no BS. Say what you mean, be authentic and honour your commitments both as an ESC member and whilst involved in the wider startup community. Things get done more efficiently, and more effectively, when we keep it real and keep it simple. The only person you should be striving to be greater than, is the person you once were yesterday.
We believe when we give to others we receive. With this in mind, our community believes all members should make an effort to contribute to the community by being helpful and sharing knowledge and/ or resources with other members. We always focus on adding value to each others lives and we strive to contribute to one anothers growth.
